Our growing baby girl

It is amazing how quickly baby's grow.  I have heard the phrase "they grow up so fast" uttered by so many parents, but I hadn't prepared myself for how true it is.  Sara Beth is noticeably bigger now then when we brought her home from the hospital.  She has even started to develop some rolls under her chin. 

We have a footed sleeper that we put her in at night to keep warm, but it is getting harder to fit her in it.  Newborn diapers are beginning to fit a little too snug, so we may be upgrading to the size 1 diapers shortly.  

She also has learned a new trick.  Twice today we have placed her on her back to go to sleep, and then, a couple hours later, when we come in to wake her up, we find her on her side.  

Thank you to all who have offered tips for curing the hiccups and gas issues.  We found a setting so her bassinet now has her torso raised on a slant, and we give her Milicon drops before every feeding in the afternoon and this has appeared to solve the problem.  For now at least.  We'll see what tomorrow brings.

Parenting tip: don't let her sleep too much on her back. You don't want her to get a flat spot on her head. I love the new picture of her. She's so cute!

She does look bigger. Isn't it amazing?

I spent dinner last night tricking my nephew into eating. Amazing how the minute you take something away or put it out of reach they magically think it is the most important thing that they have it right away ;-)
